An Emptiness Explored

The cracks and stains on the walls of my grandfather’s home in Canton, NY, mark 47 years of memories, from raising seven children, to refinishing found antiques, to keeping his wife’s memory alive. Although Robert John Sheldon died over a year ago, I still find hints of him in every room I enter: a light on in the bedroom, his favorite chair, my grandmother Jean’s vintage bottles still sitting in the window. Wherever he was, he is.
